What the Critics Say

"The amazingly prolific King returns to pure horror, pitting good against evil as in The Stand and The Shining. Moving back and forth between 1958 and 1985, the story tells of seven children in a small Maine town who discover the source of a series of horrifying murders. Having conquered the evil force once, they are summoned together 27 years later when the cycle begins again. As usual, the requisite thrills are in abundance." (Library Journal)

    "IT was Great!"

    SK Does IT again! Long but well built story and characters! As you always here,"The Book is so much better than the movie"! In this case IT doesn't even compare. An Absolute for King Freaks! And Steven Weber should do many many more books, I found him to be even better then The Great Frank Muller... May he Rest in Peace! Buy IT, Read IT, Listen to IT!!!

    "Weber makes this rich tale soar"

    Possibly the best read and acted audiobook I have listened to. Rich, sharp characterizations and a total understanding of the material. Bravo! If we get a new reading of The Stand, I hope Steven Weber will be onboard.

    "Weber Nails It"

    Kudos to Steven Weber for a stunning narration. I could not put this book down! No one writes horror like King, and now, I can't imagine any other reader for his works. Buy this audio!

    "You Are In Derry Now . . ."

    I have never read this particular King book, though I consider myself a big fan. I think I never quite got past the opening sequence which wasn't that frightening to me and I kept thinking, "A clown? Oh, puhleez . . ." (And, yeah, John Wayne Gacy kind of sprang to mind.) But I am a huge fan of Steven Weber; thought what he did in THE SHINING was fabulous. Having really enjoyed King's work when Audible snags very good actors (Woods's narration for SECRET WINDOW, SECRET GARDEN is another fabulous listen), I figured, well, why not IT?

    I have not been disappointed. Weber really TELLS this story. There is no "reading" here. I am sitting in a dark room--or around a campfire--and I am listening to a master at work.

    For years, I've associated the late Frank Muller as the voice of Stephen King, and yet not even Mr. Muller did well with all King's books. Further, the last few King books, save for DUMA KEY, haven't really turned my crank. Maybe with a very good storyteller like Mr. Weber, they would. (And I agree with others: THE STAND should be in someone's sights.)

    So thank you, Audible, for reminding me why I have loved King in the past. And encore, encore for Mr. Weber!

    "Best Stephen King audiobook yet !!"

    I am a total fan of Stephen King and enjoyed Frank Mueller's narrations, then Scott Brick. Now Steven Weber does a superlative job. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase an audiobook narrated by Steven Weber. As for the book, it is a real page turner. It's 44 hours long and is really torture to put it down. Plot is excellent. Character development awesome. I enjoyed the Dark Tower Series but have to say I'm enjoying "IT" even more !!

    "Superb"

    An outstanding twisting tale of good vs. evil. Stephen King nails it and paints a vivid tale of a very troubled small Maine town with an ancient evil lurking beneath the surface.

    Story
    "Loud and Long"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Why did the narrator insist on acting out all of the yelling lines? It seems someone should have realized that most of us are listing to this with ear buds. The constant yelling made it very difficult to listen to. I would have turned down the volume, but if I did, I wouldn't hear his whispering parts. Very frustrating!


    What didn’t you like about Steven Weber’s performance?

    The yelling.... No doubt about it. His volume went from too soft too loud in seconds. Very uncomfortable to listen to.


    Could you see It being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    After listening to this book and the cheesy "hollywood lines", I imagine a TV series or a movie was the main direction of this book.


    Any additional comments?

    Not Stephen King's best, but like all of his books, when it's good, it's real good... Unfortunately, too many down pats of this one to make it great.

    "Too over the top."

    A shame because I LOVE Stephen King and this story is one of the more creepy stories out there. There are some strong situations in there admittedly...but it's STEPHEN KING. It's very well written.
    I really would have enjoyed it I'm sure but I am going to read this one, not listen to it.
    Unliike everyone else on this review board I find the narrator too over the top. I understand that Billy is supposed to be stuttering, but Weber takes 6 seconds to say the word WHY. I started to skip over his parts because it became SO A a a a a, mmmmm, a a a a A ANNOYING!!
    I get it already! Ritchie was a parody of a boy doing a parody...I found it shallow.
    I don't need an attempted Oscar winning performance, I just need the book read to me at an adult pace and level. Thank you and G g g g g g g ugghhhhhh... g g g GOODNIGHT.

    "What a great audiobook!"

    Stephen King has always been one of my authors, and "IT" is one of my favorite books. I was not disappointed with audiobook, and I am glad that it wasn't abridged.

    The narrator, Steven Weber, was absolutely wonderful. His voices for the different characters were great. The voice he used for Pennywise gave me chills. He also did a very authentic British accent. I don't think this audiobook would disappoint any die hard Stephen King fans!

    "better than i remembered it"

    this book really gave me the creeps.the hair on my arms and back actually stood up more than once. i read it as a teen about 20 years ago, and i found it better this time around. the narrator was very good, nice range of voices. the pre teen group sex in the sewer was one scene i could have done without. but overall very good.
